Michael Zerafa

Every world champion I’ve fought it’s had to be over in their backyard with 20-hour flights and having to acclimatise over there. This fight is only an hour-and-a-half away from me and everything is at reach. Mentally it’s a lot easier for me, I’m looking forward to it.
I’m 27. I’ve only been a pro for seven years, but I’ve had almost 30 fights and have fought 250 rounds already. I’ve had that experience and fought some great guys and tough guys in Australia.
I’m expecting Jeff to put the pressure on and be tough, to sit on my chest and try to bully me, but I’ve fought as a middleweight before and he hasn’t.

Zerafa is been saying how bad I am and my wins haven’t been that great.
It’s funny because who has he fought? Who are the great guys that he has fought?
He’s putting me down, it’s crazy, he should be talking it the other way around.

  • Draw: 27/1

Prediction

Tobias Klein
Who will win: Horn or Zerafa?

Horn is a boxer of a higher level than Zerafa. Although he acts too straightforwardly, he has a good kick from the right.
Most likely, Jeff will box in the middle distance. He will box with both hands and throw Zerafa blows, as he did in the fight against Pacquiao.

The referee will stop the fight, Jeff Horn will win by TKO.
